The City of Frankfurt welcomes the initiative. Many institutions support it, including the city’s cultural office, the Jewish Museum and the Institute for City History. Schools, parishes and associations are involved and take an active part in the laying of the stones. The biographies and persecution fates of the people for whom Stolpersteine were laid appear in an annual documentation and are published on various platforms on the internet.
In Frankfurt, the laying of Stolpersteine is technically prepared by the Frankfurt institution ffmnaturnah, which also lays Stolpersteine itself, that are then ceremonially “unveiled” by the Initiative.
At least twice a year, the Stolpersteine are cleaned by “Putzpatinnen” and “Putzpaten” - on the Jewish Holocaust memorial day “Yom HaShoah” (in April or May with changing dates) and on 9/10 November).
